Product Description

Dayton Audio’s 13 mm DAEX13CT-8 coin type exciter features the same ability to turn nearly any surface into a speaker, as other exciters and tactile transducers, only in a more compact package for being used in smaller surfaces. The exciter’s small size enables audio reproduction in places never imagined before, like monitors, windows, toys… even cabinet doors.
When compared to similar sized exciters, a neodymium magnet is employed to make maximum magnetic flux around the proprietary voice coil for increased sensitivity. Because of this, there are reduced power requirements. This makes it possible to use very small audio amplifiers, without sacrificing total output. Its 8-ohm nominal impedance facilitates the use of parallel and series-parallel wired arrays for a highly focused, minimum dispersion sound pattern.
To provide maximum acoustic energy transfer between the transducer and the surface to which it is attached, 3M VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive is pre-applied… just peel and stick. Two PCB solder points keep installation and wiring as compact as possible.

Note: An exciter’s frequency response and sensitivity are completely dependent on the exciter’s designated surface. Smaller, thinner materials are more likely to be louder and create a mid/tweeter response. Thicker, larger materials (with multiple exciters) will be slightly quieter but result in a more full-range sound.
